Workplace Mentoring Qualification

Getting to the root of people’s barriers, helping to improve working environments.

“The Workplace Mentoring courses from The Mentoring School are fully immersive courses that teach the hidden skillset of the workplace (and the most useful of the lot!). A manager can expect to see real time productivity change!” Ahmed Esat

What is a Workplace Mentor?

Mentors in the workplace are colleagues who are trained to provide support and advice to other members of staff.  Working in a supportive company environment, the qualified team members can be accessed by colleagues who would like support about something that they feel is affecting their performance at work.  It may be advice on how to resolve a problem, they may be a new member of staff after advice from an experienced colleague, or it may be how to overcome a personal difficulty in the working environment.

What are the benefits of mentoring?

Mentoring is shown to develop individuals within a company at senior and low levels.  It increases employee motivation, job performance and retention rates.  For managers it multiplies the impact of any change and also prepares the new leaders for the complexity of the challenges they will face.
